PhD in Nursing (On–Campus) Course Plan

 

The foundation for the academic program in nursing is comprised of three areas: the development of nursing knowledge, the application of that knowledge, and the context of health systems and social policy. Successful completion of 49 graduate credits will complete the doctoral degree. The UW–Milwaukee Graduate School requires that 31 credits must be earned in residence at the university subsequent to obtaining doctoral student status.
